WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ringing in the New Year with more laughs than should be legal, audiences will delight in the hilarious The Mystery of Irma Vep. This zany romp through the mysterious and the sublime features two actors, eight roles (cue cross-dressing number), and wields a healthy mix of storytelling genres, from Hitchcock to Victorian melodrama to lurid, 19th century pulp fiction (or, in British parlance, 'penny dreadfuls'). This OBIE Award-winning, madcap escapade is sure to leave you breathless with laughter, while its expertly constructed story manages to both send-up and celebrate the traditional Gothic mystery.
